From the moment I met James I knew we would get along. His relaxed but caring attitude soon put me at ease as I was about to put my property on the market. After a long and informative discussion about the current market I left the office confident I had made the right decision. From then on it was smooth sailing as he dealt with all the negotiating that lead to the quick sale at the optimum price. I would definite recommend using his expertise to anyone needing an agent.

Your agency recently handled the sale of my property at 1/21 Sunrise Boulevard. I would like to express my appreciation and thanks to Su Reynolds and James Young who handled the sale. Su and James gave me a realistic initial price range for the property and obtained a firm buyer within 14 days of the property going on the market. They kept me in the loop and the sale went through smoothly. I would recommend Su and James to anyone who was thinking of selling in the Sunrise or wider Byron Bay area.”

James is the consummate Real Estate Professional! He was very flexible and amenable in meeting our needs during the entire process of selling our home, expertly guiding and appraising us each step of the way. James was extremely professional in all his dealings and conversations with us, always looking out for our interests. He kept us updated with even the smallest detail, and provided immediate feedback after each viewing. Thanks to James’ strong negotiating skills; he gave us the result we were looking for and we are extremely happy! Greg and I refer to James as our ‘go to guy’ and we will definitely be coming back to James for our next property transaction in the Byron Shire. If you too want an experienced and knowledgeable Real Estate Agent who inspires confidence, gives you trusted and realistic advice, is at all times professional and courteous, then look no further than James Young.
